Sports Reporter vs. Major League Baseball (and NFL Pre-Season): Summer, 2016!
Another profitable March Madness came and went, the NBA season is done, but we’re still smacking BASEBALL picks outta the park every day. BEST BET and/or RECOMMENDED selections, every day in the DAILY BRIEF, our online-only publication refreshed daily for Web members.

But all active members who choose 6-month or 1-year memberships receive a complimentary copy of the 2016 Zone Blitz, our annual College and NFL Forecasting Almanac!

SPRING, 2016 – If anybody out there won more than $160 playing NCAA Tournament Bracket pools, please let us know. The reason I ask is because we’re not fans of bracket pools, and have maintained that a person has a better chance to win more money in NCAA Tournament action by spot-playing sides against the spread than they do by playing bracket pools. The vast, massive majority of people who play bracket pools lose their entry fee and win nothing back. So, even at a $5 entry fee, their net for the three weeks is -$5. Sports Reporter Basketball Brief 2016 NCAA Tournament selections were a modest 6-4, which is where I get the $160 figure, assuming $100 wagered on each of the 10 sides. Using the Sports Reporter Premier Players Phone/Email pick results, the net winning figure on 2016 NCAA Tournament games was +$500. (With CIT, NIT, CBI and Vegas 16 games added, the Premier Players’ March Madness net profit was better than +$2,000.) MORE
